Restored To Its Original Splendor, Modernized For Today.

440 Ninth Avenue is an Art Deco original, newly restored to offer a stunning selection of cutting-edge workspaces in the heart of New York City’s most desirable and central neighborhood.

Built in 1927 and previously known as the “Harding Building,” 440 Ninth Avenue is located on the corner of Ninth Avenue and West 35th Street, just steps from Penn Station, the Lincoln Tunnel, and bustling Hudson Yards with its vast array of parks, restaurants, and high-end retailers.

The historic eighteen-story building features a classic stone masonry façade, multiple setbacks, and a spacious, lushly landscaped terrace.


Building on Its Historical Past

Like the ever-changing city and neighborhood in which it resides, 440 Ninth Avenue seamlessly blends its historic past with its present-day identity as a modern workspace. A recent renovation thoughtfully preserves the building’s Art Deco aesthetic while offering innovative, open offices, and the following updates:

  • Full restoration of the iconic stone masonry façade with terra-cotta detailing.

  • A grand lobby that greets guests and tenants upon arrival and serves as an intimate gathering place. Renovations also include new elevator cabs, exterior entries, and a new energy-efficient heating system.
